Restablish Site-to-Site Replication in AD / Server 2003

I have a site in AD that lost connectivity to the forest a few weeks ago and I did not know it (doh).

Anyway - all connectivity is back but AD will not replicate and sync anymore.

I get Event IDs 1865, 1311, and 1566 over and over and over.

Anyone know what I need to do to get them replicating again?

use repmon or "ad sites & services" you can initiate a inter-site replication.
but if that fails you might want to have KCC re-calculate the topology.

I have gone into "ad sites & services" and clicked on "Replicate Now" but it doesn't replicate - just throws off the errors.

How do I have KCC re-calc the topology?

I do not know if this will help, but 1 of the errors states that the "Target principal name is incorrect" and this is for the main DC

When I check topology it states "Target principal name is incorrect".

the secure channel between DCs may be broken.

strongline,
Thank you for your help. Your answer was not everything that I needed but you pointed me in the right direction and I solved it.
FYI - After resetting the secure channel, I needed to remove lingering objects and then force replication to restart with a registry modification. It is working now and I thank you.
